One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

• Took a one-year sabbatical from work to travel around Southeast Asia from March 2018- March 2019. Gap year baby!

• First time to do solo backpacking around the Indochina region (Bangkok-Phnom Penh-Siem Reap-Singapore-Bali) during my birthday-slash-soul-searching phase in 2012. Traveled solo every year for my bday since then. Looking forward to my next cross country backpacking adventure!

• Rode the motorbike for 3+ hours from Chiang Mai, Thailand to the hippie town of Pai!

• Lived away from family for university at the age of 16. Started to travel solo since then. Worked abroad when I was 25yo. From Singapore to Jakarta to Bali to Doha then Bangkok at the moment.
